The An-32 freighter plane couldn't gain height after takeoff from Kinshasa-N'Dolo Airport. The crew elected to abort the takeoff, but the aircraft overran the runway by 600 m and crashed into a market square. Unconfirmed reports say the aircraft was overloaded by 595 pounds.
The aircraft was owned by Moscow Airways and was also flown by a Russian crew. African Air wasn't authorized to operate this flight, and has therefore borrowed authorization papers from Scibe Airlift.
